A new arrival in the shed
« on: November 25, 2016, 05:28:55 pm »
Prior to my S10, I had a four year stint with a 05 Tiger 955i and before that, a nine year affair with a '98 Thunderbird Sport. The Tiger got me into the ADV bike scene but my TBS was the best fun to ride out over the back roads of the Peak District. I've hankered after another 900 triple for many years now but somehow, I always managed to talk myself out of getting another one. That was until today. I'm now about 50% recovered from my heart surgery, which if anything, gave my priorities a massive shift into a more "personally favourable" direction  O:-).  So i'm now the owner of my first ever, second bike. She's in pretty good fettle for a 20 year old and will be sitting alongside my wonderful S10 by this time next week. Happy days! ;D

Fantastic.  A whole group of us bought 95 - 97 Triumph Daytonas, Speed Triples, Tigers, Trophy's and what not, back when they were introduced in the US!  My Lotus Racing Yellow Daytona 1200 is one of the bikes I think back on the most.

1997 Daytona T595..

The Trophy 1200 always made me think of M1 Abrams tanks. Heavy, smooth, and fast. The FJR is a bit similar.
